What is Single Sign-on?

Single Sign-on allows the System Administrator within your organization to manage all logins across all applications from one secure platform. This ensures that applications can only be accessed if configured properly, thus giving you the confidence that your company's private information is always safe.

For organizations with more than a handful of employees, this feature is critical for IT and Security teams to be able to effectively manage user accounts across dozens or hundreds of vendors. In the event that an employee leaves the company, it allows the IT team to immediately disable their access to all applications, rather than logging into 100 different user management portals.

What do I need to set up to use Single Sign-on with Precoro?

1. Open Configurations tab on your left and go to SSO settings tab, move the switch to On;

2. Add and Configure the users  *skip this step if you've already done

3. Create an application for Precoro in your identity provider app.

    *Here is an example from PingOne:

4. Configure this application.

5. Add attributes for mapping.

6. Assign groups for the application.

7. Paste the field Identity provider issuer from the identity provider account.

8. Download metadata from your identity provider and upload it to Precoro.

What happens next?

1. When a user has access to the group where Precoro is assigned, he can authorize to Precoro with his access to the identity provider.

2. When your company uses SSO, the following capabilities will be disabled in Precoro:

  • password setup and reset;
  • email editing.
